Tucked beneath the misty mountains of Sapa Valley in Northern Vietnam, Topas Eco Lodge sits above two majestic cone formed hills. Based on sustainable principles, the lodge aims to have a minimum impact on the surrounding environment, employs local people, and uses local products in order to bring economic benefits to the community.
The 33 sophisticated chalet-style bungalows are dotted near the peak of the two hills, each with a balcony for a private head-in-the-clouds encounter and to make the most of the unique location. Built with local white granite, the Tay stilt design and lacquered wood panels provide a truly authentic Vietnamese village atmosphere, so guests feel fully immersed in local life. Rooms are individually decorated, come with all modern conveniences apart from a TV, and are each angled differently for breathtaking views of the mountains.
An on-site restaurant serves up local fare, and there’s a new heated infinity pool where guests can unwind. Equally as relaxing is the serene spa and its menu of traditional Red Dao herbal baths and massage – the perfect antidote to clearing your mind after a hard hike around the Sapa hills.
